Chelsea Vanderford


Chelsea recently made a difficult decision which will take her away from Carpenter House.  However we are excited about her new endeavor where she will quickly gain the requisite hours necessary to obtain her state license. She has been a blessing to our team and her clients.


Carpenter House hosts a Military Trauma Support Group and offers special workshops for children, teens, and adults.


We work to help couples rebuild their troubled relationships.  We offer private sessions, are conducting an Intensive Couples workshop in 2019, and offer a special Consierge Counseling option where a therapist will work with you and/or your family in the privacy of your home on a Saturday.  Call the front desk for applicable rates.

Therapy Dog

Dr. Tally

What is a working dog? I’m glad you asked! Therapy dogs are not usually called service dogs as they are not trained to physically assist individuals.

Additional Benefits

Carpenter House patients also benefit from additional interventions from our Masters level Interns and Practicum students.  Our therapists can be booked for workshops at your office or church.

Nannette Borland can now accept both Tricare and Medicare!

We work hard to schedule you quickly with little or no wait time!
